Debbie Harry as paperback cover model


Even then, hipper than Madonna.


You could tell she was no debutante.


True, when I met her at the restaurant, she was indeed not a debutante… :smile:

Many, many moons ago, I saw her in a double bill with Tears for Fears as a solo act, though she of course played all her songs from Blondie. I believe that was 1990.
She came out for the encore with a full length fur coat on, then dropped it half way through the song to show off her bikini. What a fun show.

And of course, as a teen she was in a typical 60’s Eastern-influenced hippy rock band before Blondie as well.

I didn’t think she could be hotter, but… there ya go.

Debbie Harry, Head Model.

And you try to run but he’s got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you’re in the man from Mars

And all this time, I thought she meant the PLANET Mars…

And now it’s finally clear in which direction and to when I would travel, if given a time machine and only a single round-trip ride.

And possibly even one-way.

Under those stage lights… I’d lose the fur coat too. Though in my case, these days, I might have to use an electric razor.

She shows up in Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree as well.

If I had that book it would receive a place of honor on my shelf next to my Frank Frazetta cover model paperbacks. If I had those as well, of course.

I could be wrong, but I THINK it was for a different effect other than cooling off. :smile:

Let’s not forget Videodrome, Debbie was never afraid of partaking in disturbing imagery.
